Hi VTEC crew,

Ok I know this might be off topic and maybe it was already mentioned before. Still, looking at your photos I can't help wondering..... I notice that you were able to stop down the lens while getting sharp results. Did you use a tripod? I went there last night and struggled with the lighting. At ISO800 and with VR, in many cases the combination is not enough for me to step to something like f/8+.
Seriously I think you should post a how-to article on autoshow photography :)

I usually shoot ISO 400 at the shows so we can avoid using the flash as much as possible, and for this show it was all handheld. Shawn shot some of the pics too. We were shooting with a Canon 1D Mark II, with a Canon 24-70mm/f2.8L lens. I know it can be really aggravating to shoot but eventually you'll adapt to your camera. Most cameras I have used tend to over expose because their metering is thrown way off by the whacky lighting, so sometimes I'll use exposure compensation to speed up the shutter a little bit. Other times I have to go into full manual mode and fix the shutter speed and aperture.

I have to say that the equipment must play a role too. I know nothing about photography other than what Jeff tells me, and I rarely altered anything from the auto settings. Maybe you can tell the difference - Jeff shot the reveals at Honda and Acura, I shot the Nissans and a lot of other various cars in the booths, and the Jeff shot the last couple pages of photos - in particular the hard to capture Ferrari and Porsche booths (both were very, very dark - not exactly good for presenting your vehicles IMO).

Personally, I can't tell much difference except that some of my shots were a bit "harsh" for lack of a better word (but I didn't try any really hard shots in the dark like Jeff either), so the Canon equipment must be pretty damn good for an amateur like me to get some respectable photos.

I'll reiterate a bit on Shawn's comments. While I do have some amateur photo background, the Canon body we use is freaking awesome. It can make most anyone look like a hero once you get the initial setup working. Pricey, but worth every penny.

Ryan
